The team at PPG Porter Paints has dedicated 90 years to sprucing up homes with the company's revered brand of vivid paints, stains, and primers. Silken Touch paint ($54.19+/gal.) stands ready to replace previous wall and ceiling embellishments, such as presidential murals painted in mustard. Permanizer ($67.65+/gal.), which carries a lifetime warranty against the development of flaking and other defects, helps to prevent al fresco fortifications from cracking and peeling during supersoaker season. Acri-Shield ($55.97+/gal.) lasts for long periods indoors and out, and coats outer walls easily in the hands of both professionals and casual painters. Amicable staff members roam the aisles and are eager to provide product recommendations for any home, office, or abandoned grain silo.

The A/C tune up starts with a thorough de-gunkifying of the outside condenser coil, allowing the machine to return to shrinking heat molecules and shipping them back to the sun from which they came.

With the pressure-washing option, the house gets a refreshing motor-powered bath to enliven bleak-spirited bricks and sullied siding.
